Who are we?

Millbank is a trusted, hardworking and knowledgeable agency providing high quality recruitment consultancy to specialist technical markets. Our turnover is in excess of £70m.

Over the past 30 years, our consultative approach has ensured we do what’s right by both our prestigious blue chip clients and our skilled candidates. Our specialist consultants know their stuff about the industries we serve, which is crucial to our success.

As the industries we serve have changed, we have advanced with them, meaning we can deliver an up-to-date service whilst calling on our experience to instil trust and best practice into everything we do.

Who are we looking for?

We are expanding our specialist team of expert consultants to meet ever increasing demand from our clients. Many of our consultants have been drawn from our industry sectors, meaning they have an advantage in recognising quality candidates and giving expert advice and assistance, but it’s not essential you have engineering experience. If you have a passion for ethical, professional recruitment, we want to meet you.
